The One Show’s Alex Jones is joining BBC Radio Wales in September to present a weekend show.
Alex, who grew up in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, is the latest high profile presenter to take over the Sunday Morning slot on the station.
Alex says: “I’m so excited to get my headphones back on for BBC Radio Wales and to play some of my favourite songs.
“There is something so special about radio – the connection you can have with the listeners and there’s something extra special about talking to people in Wales.”
So far the “Sunday Morning with…” slot has been presented by a series of high profile Welsh names which have included Keeping Faith star Eve Myles, presenter Carol Vorderman, athlete Colin Jackson, actress Suzanne Packer and broadcaster Anna Ryder Richardson.
Each week, Alex will be joined by special guests for a relaxed mix of music and conversation. Joining her on the first show will be Rhod Gilbert and Sian Harries who’ll be discussing starting their own podcast during lockdown, Denise Van Outen will be talking musicals and Welsh entrepreneurs, Sophie and Hannah Pycroft, aka the Spectrum sisters will be sharing how they are taking the beauty world by storm.
Editor of BBC Radio Wales Colin Paterson added:
“Alex is one of the country’s best loved presenters. Her style and warmth makes her perfect for radio and I’m over the moon that she’s joining the line-up here at BBC Radio Wales.”
Sunday Mornings with Alex Jones starts on Sunday 6 September and will air every Sunday for 6 consecutive weeks from 9.30am until 11am.
We're delighted to welcome The One Show's Alex Jones to Sunday mornings on #BBCRadioWales. 😊
